INSTAND External Quality Assessment Schemes – March 2017
Virus Immunology Virus Genome Detection by PCR/NAT
You have participated in one or several of the INSTAND external quality assessment (EQA) schemes in virus diagnostics of March 2017. Today you receive the pre-evaluation.
By mail, you receive the following participation documents of those EQA schemes in which you have participated this time:

* The INSTAND EQA schemes Influenza viruses (genome / Ag) (370) and Norovirus (381) were postponed to the second quarter of 2017 in order to consider new circulating virus variants for the corresponding panel (shipment date: 08 May 2017).
The EQA schemes having been performed in March 2017 are highlighted in bold (Table 2). For these highlighted EQA schemes, the corresponding participation documents will be sent out by mail together with
EQA schemes in Table 2 marked in italics were not performed in March 2017.
Please see the following Tables 3, 4 and 5 for details on sample properties and the expected target values for this EQA scheme March 2017. You received information on sample properties already per email on 18.04.2017.
The reports of all EQA schemes will be released on the INSTAND homepage immediately after completion. For details please see the INSTAND homepage under "EQAS Online / Service for EQA tests / EQA area (Virus immunology / Virus genome detection)" in English language: http://www.instand-ev.de/en/eqas-online/service-for-eqa-tests.html and in German language: http://www.instand-ev.de/ringversuche-online/ringversuche-service.html.

RiliBÄK A compilation of the "Guidelines of the German Medical Association on quality assurance in medical laboratory testing (Bundesärztekammer / RiliBÄK = Richtlinie der Bundesärztekammer zur Qualitätssicherung laboratoriumsmedizinischer Untersuchungen)" with all Sections including Section B 2 "Qualitative medical laboratory testing = Qualitative laboratoriumsmedizinische Untersuchungen" and Section B 3 "Direct detection and characterisation of infectious agents = Direkter Nachweis und Charakterisierung von Infektionserregern" has recently been published (in German language: Deutsches Ärzteblatt, Jg. 111, Heft 38, 19. September 2014, A 1583 - A 1618) (please see link).
An English version of the guideline translated by INSTAND e.V. with the consent of the Executive Board of the German Medical Association has been published in "German Medical Science" [in English language: Bundesärztekammer (German Medical Association), Instand e.V., Guidelines of the German Medical Association on quality assurance in medical laboratory testing. GMS Z Forder Qualitatssich Med Lab. 2015; 6] (please see link).
Notice for German laboratories: The requirements laid down in Specified Section B 3 - effective since 01.04.2013 and with a transition period until 31.05.2015 - should now be fulfilled.

Additional training programs in virus genome detection Additional training programs were provided for the sixth time with the EQAS term March 2017.
Cytomegalovirus (368) Hepatitis B virus (378) Hepatitis C virus (379) HIV-1 (RNA) (382)
Please note: Additional training programs for virus genome detection of CMV, HBV, HCV and HIV-1 (RNA), respectively, containing low virus concentrations, are offered once only in March. The integration of the previous EQA scheme terms (March and September) will make it possible to evaluate a larger number of analyses with improved statistics.
A training program contains low-concentration samples for each of the viruses to verify test sensitivities. The low-concentration samples are used as a complement to the respective main EQA scheme and contain samples with virus concentrations within the requirements of the new Guidelines of the German Medical Association on quality assurance in medical laboratory testing (Bundesärztekammer/RiliBÄK = Richtlinie der Bundesärztekammer zur Qualitätssicherung laboratoriumsmedizinischer Untersuchungen) as specified in Table B 3-2a of the RiliBÄK.
Please note: A training program can only be ord
